condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Unknown, possibly E.C.R.
model name / number: Similar to 652 or 752
size / dimensions: 18" x 8" x 11"
This working six tube French radio is from the early 1950s. It does not have any identifying markings, but it is very similar to E.C.R. 652 and 752 models. All electrolytic and paper/wax capacitors have been replaced, as have any problematic resistors. Tubes have been replaced as required, with the exception of a weak but functional magic eye tube. The unit has been thoroughly cleaned and moving parts lubricated.

This radio has a beautiful cabinet custom built by a previous owner who was obviously a gifted woodworker with a fondness for mid-century design.

This radio has shortwave, longwave and broadcast (AM) bands as well as a banana plug connection for a external device like a cell phone or ipad, etc. (I can provide the adapter wires if required.) This radio requires an external antenna.
